Sometimes a deal that seems too good to be true is, in fact, true. This is one of those times: During the entire month of February, Amazon is giving away a whopping nine PC games and tons of free loot to Amazon Prime members. Not a member? Believe it or not, you can still get the goods. Sign up for the free 30-day Prime trial here, and you can take advantage of this free offer. Once the trial is over, you can either subscribe to Amazon Prime for $13 a month (or $119 a year) or just cancel altogether. No hard feelings.
Fans of Twitch might remember all the free games they used to give out. Good news: they still do! It's just under a different name now: Prime Gaming. Here's the deal: Every month, Amazon Prime doles out on-the-house video games. Games release on a weekly basis, so you'll want to check in on the regular — but never fear, because the release schedule is here!
And even if you cancel the service, you can keep the games in your digital library. It's an amazing deal!
On top of that, you can get a ton of in-game gear, too (typically for various game systems like PS4, Xbox and PC). In-game currencies, cosmetic bonus packs and much more are all part of the Prime Gaming package. Right now, you can get up to $500,000 for use in Grand Theft Auto 5 (though wouldn't it be nice if it were real cash?), a Legendary Rapport pack for Lost Ark, and the Rampart Bundle for Apex Legends, to name just a few. There are even rewards for mobile games like Candy Crush.
Scroll for this month’s game giveaways, broken down by release date, which are all available for PC only:
Packing in both the Bloodmoon and Tribunal expansions, this is the ultimate version of one of the most immersive RPGs of the last 30 years. Sure, it looks a little dated — it released in 2001, after all — but it's completely worth playing, and the wealth of mods available to players through a variety of sources mean you can customize the game however you like. Want to play as Thomas the Tank Engine? Go for it. Take on the role of the the reincarnated Nerevar, the savior of Morrowind, and fight a reawakened ancient evil.
If you're a fan of management simulators, Onsen Master is a must-play. This game puts you in charge of managing a hot spring. Tend to the needs of guests, cook them meals, and even fight off mischievous yokai that bother visitors. The game has a cute, eye-catching style and is sure to keep you entertained for hours on end.
Fans of 2D platformers will have a blast with this runner. If you've ever played Temple Run, this is pretty similar — except the level is constantly scrolling and you're fighting to evade enemies that have stolen your family's treasure.
DK is like Super Smash Bros, but with multiple layers and mythical entities instead of Nintendo characters. Focus on weakening your opponents enough to knock them out of the arena, then repeat the process all over again until you are the only fighter standing.
One Hand Clapping is a bit of an odd game that combines elements of karaoke with a rhythm game. Hum or sing into your computer's microphone to control your character and explore the world around you. Think of it kind of like a vocal trainer, but your teacher is a bunch of cute NPCs.
This game is just as weird as its title suggests. It's an arcade-style shooter that amps up the amount of blood and gore, tosses in a lot of faced-paced combat, and has the player fight through hordes of enemies to rescue their friends from the hilariously named Scorpion Supreme. We're not sure if that's a boss or a weird take on a cheeseburger.
Space Crew is a little bit 4X game, a little bit Minecraft, and a little bit X-Com. Take control of a space ship that you can customize to your liking and recruit a crew to help you explore the galaxy — all while fighting a race of alien invaders that want to claim your corner of space as their own.
Fancy yourself a fan of roguelikes? Then Tunche is the game for you. Take control of one of five different characters and explore the Amazon rainforest. The best part? You can play this one solo or with friends, which is a bit of a rarity for this genre.
This is another game that's just a bit too odd for words. Play as someone who is definitely the bad guy as you manage the cut throat world of organ trading. Weird? Yes. Is it fun? In an equally as weird way, yes.
